Vegan Vicky Sponge

This is my Mum’s tried and tested vegan sponge.  Very moist, nice and light, and you can decorate it how you like!

75g vegan butter

70g caster sugar

3tbsp smooth apricot jam

150g vanilla soya yogurt

175g self-raising flour

2tsp baking powder


Cream together butter and sugar.

Add jam and yogurt.

Mix in flour and baking powder.

Cook for 50 minutes 160°C/140°C.


Vegan Sweet Potato Brownies

Don’t worry – these brownies are fudgy, gooey and don’t taste like a root vegetable!

To make 16 chocolate-y squares, you’ll need:


400g sweet potato

140g dark chocolate

80g coconut oil

100g self-raising flour

160g caster sugar

a pinch of salt


Boil the sweet potato until it’s soft, then mash together.

Melt the chocolate and coconut oil, then pour into the mash.

Add the flour, sugar and salt, and mix together.

Pour into a lined baking tray and bake at 180°C for 40 minutes.


I also like adding more chocolate, fruit or nuts into the mixture!
